Introducción



Computer Technology TAKING THE HEAT OFF THERMAL LOADS A turn-of-the-century telescope is under development at Goddard Space Flight Center.
The Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) is a follow-on to the already orbiting Hubble Space Telescope.
NGST will be imbued with the ability to visit a time when galaxies were young. This pioneering, highly advanced scientific observatory will observe the “dark zone,” a period when primordial seeds began to evolve into the galaxies and stars we see today. A major engineering challenge awaits NGST builders.
A tool that is being employed to help engineers grapple with the complexity of the NGST is offered by Frederick A.
Costello, Incorporated (FAC, Inc.), a concurrent engineering software developer based in Herndon, Virginia.
Costello’s TCON™ software enables graphical user-interface programs to create three-dimensional thermal models.
The NGST is to be passively cooled.
Solar heating must be reduced by a factor of 10,000 in NGST.
The observatory’s proposed capabilities will far exceed anything possible from the ground or in space. Costello’s software is an affordable approach to create full three-dimensional thermal models efficiently and accurately.
The product reduces modeling time to onethird the amount of time required by conventional, lessautomated methods.
TCON software can convert over 4500 nodes and 4500 radiation surfaces.
Color temperature contours make presentation of the software’s assessment of thermal characteristics quick, easy, and effective. Goddard Space Flight Center awarded Costello a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to develop a low-cost computer program for integrating thermal modeling with other engineering disciplines.
That SBIR funding sparked the innovative software, developing a whole new line of business for the consulting company. The software has been sold to NASA and to major American and foreign companies.
It has also been adopted by developers of commercial geos...
